Chelsea boss Benitez's latest Torres defence? He's good defending corners!

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez has mentioned Fernando Torres' defending at corners in an attempt to support the striker. He was asked about Torres' form at yesterday's Champions League media conference.

Benitez appeared to be clutching at straws in praising the striker's contribution when Chelsea were defending from corners, saying: "Two or three times he's cleared the ball."

He added: "As a striker, he's helping the team. I wouldn't mind him not scoring but the team winning."
